Homemade Raw Blueberry Jam

Last week I got a little blueberry happy and ended up buying way too many for my little family. They were about to go bad, so I turned to pinterest to find a good blueberry jam recipe to use them up.  I was so happy to find the easiest recipe ever from Step into my Green World. This jam takes 10 minutes to make (ok, 14 minutes but who's counting), is pectin free, sugar free and healthy for you! 


4 cups fresh blueberries
2 Tablespoons raw honey
2 Tablespoons chia seeds
4 Tablespoons water


Soak the chia seeds in 4 tablespoons of water for 10 mins. Mix all ingredients together for 3-4 mins in a blender. The chia seeds will gel giving the jam some texture. Pour into jars (makes about 4 cups), and devour!

That's it! 
So easy, fresh, and delicious.
 The jam will last up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator or 6 months in the freezer. 
Enjoy- Alex


  1. I'm so glad you made this so that I know it's good! I've seen this recipe EVERYWHERE lately with the chia and haven't had the chance to try it. Yum. It looks divine.

  2. do you think this chia jam can be canned? i keep meaning to try it but i want to make a bunch and can it.

    1. My guess would be no, but I am not certain about that. If you find out, let me know because I would love to can some as well!
